With the mobile apps, you can host or attend meetings from your iPhone, iPad, or iPod Touch device, or Android smartphone. Jump into a meeting room quickly, and re-join meetings you recently attended. If you have an account, you can launch your own meeting and search your company directory for meetings to join.
Note: If you uploaded a profile picture in the desktop app, meeting participants will see your picture in mobile meetings and the mobile apps. See Add a profile picture to the desktop app for instructions.
Start your meeting (hosts)
On the Home tab, tap Join on an upcoming meeting hosted by you. Or, on the Meetings tab, tap your meeting room link.
The app signs you in to the meeting and asks how you want to connect your audio.
Join a meeting
- On the Home or Meetings tab, tap the meeting link or Join to quickly join a meeting from your Outlook calendar or tap the search icon in the upper right. From the Meetings tab, Android users can also tap the More (⋮) icon, and then tap Join my meeting room.
- To search for a meeting to join:
- Tap a recently joined meeting to join it again.
- Enter the URL of the meeting to join or the name of the meeting host to search your company directory, and then tap a meeting in the results.
The host's room opens and you are automatically signed in as a guest.
The next step is to choose how you want to talk in the meeting by connecting your audio.
Connect your audio
You can use your data or Wi-Fi connection for HD meeting audio, have the meeting call your phone, or dial in to the meeting.
- Connect now with VoIP to talk and listen through a connected headset (recommended) or your device's mic and speakers.
- Dial in with my phone to choose a dial-in number. The app calls in to the meeting and enters the passcode. No need to memorize an access number or passcode.
- Call my phone to have the meeting room call you at a phone number you enter. The app remembers phone numbers you enter, so you don't have to enter them again.
Welcome to the meeting
Tap Guests to show everyone in the meeting, including any roles assigned to a participant. If you are the host, tap a guest's name to mute their mic, promote them to the Presenter role, or dismiss them from your meeting. Tap Meeting to see who is currently speaking, who spoke last in the meeting, or to view shared content. Tap Chat to join the current conversation. Tap Exit to leave the meeting or just manually close your app (iOS).

- Tap the middle of the screen to hide and show the audio controls. If viewing a video, tapping hides and shows the player controls as well.
